1970s Yves Saint Laurent Ruffled Front Baby Doll Plaid Dress


Prints and Yves Saint Laurent were always the perfect combination and on this darling little plaid print dress that is shown to its full advantage. I love the oversized print in shades of brown and black that cover the surface of the dress. The cut is pure YSL with an amazing ruffle treatment to the bodice. It is a nod to the tuxedo in its feel and the ruffled edge of the front detailing is carried through the collar and cuffs as well. The fit is easy to wear with a high neckline and a bodice cut to softly fall over the bust. It skims over the torso with a full cut through the waist and then the skirt flares out under that in the prettiest of ways. It has a grown up 'baby doll' dress feel to it but with the sophistication one would expect from Yves. You can wear it lose and easy or cinch in the waist for more definition - which would also allows you to change the length of the skirt. Appears unworn. Excellent condition Fully lined through the bodice in a black muslin with the sleeves and skirt left unlined. It buttons to close down the front to the waist and each cuff buttons to close. No size tag. Sleeves: 24" Shoulders: 14" Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 15" from neck to waist Skirt: 21" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.
